HI Maria…I think you need to talk to our Advisor who is a great Advocate named Gregg Schiller….his e-mail address is: GreggSchiller2001@telus.net …I will have him write you back…I know there is a People First-Oregon group with a website that you can get to under our LINKS section under Self Advocacy Groups…say hi to your daughter for me…I have a little bit of cerebral palsy and I am out in my community every day.
